Your next book boyfriend should be a god!
How can he embrace love when his very touch brings death?
Archipellus is the god of Samhain, the holiest—and most dangerous—of all the pagan sabbats. On the night of All Souls Eve, the veil between worlds stretches to its thinnest, and Archipellus must use his incubus powers to draw sexual energy and reinforce the barrier to keep the realms from chaos. The draining is perilous to humans, so the women he chooses are those who are already near death. With their consent, he will aid their journey to the underworld in a final moment of blissful release.
Considering this, he knows without a doubt that he is immune to the plan the Fates have unleashed—a love spell that has consumed each of his sabbat brothers whole.
Melissa Jacobs walks in to her terminally ill sister’s hospital room and is shocked to discover a gorgeous, yet frightening incubus preparing to drain her. She stops him and offers to take Bethany’s place, provided that Archipellus uses some of the power drained to try and heal her sister. The result is a tear in the veil, allowing a creature to kidnap Bethany and vanish into another realm.
To find Melissa’s lost sister, Archipellus must join with his half-angel brother, a warrior friend, and the fiery human lover who refuses to be left behind. The monsters they will face on their quest are not as dangerous as keeping Melissa near, for the temptation to possess her may prove too great to resist. When he gives in and drains her too far, he must save her at all costs. He will stand at the crossroads between the living and dead to confront the truth about his powers—and the price for using them.
About the Sons of Herne series:
The god Herne has appointed eight of his most virile, headstrong sons as keepers of the pagan holidays. To honor their sabbat, each must join with a mortal female in a ritual to maintain the balance between worlds.
It is the year of The Thousand Seasons, and the Fates have secretly conspired to mark the end of an era by granting the gods one thing they lack--a true union of male and female that will last well beyond the fleeting passion of a sabbat joining.
Herne’s sons will wrestle with the conflict between sacred duty and their own yearnings, a struggle that will not only challenge their beliefs, but may threaten the success of rituals that must be observed lest the realms of mortal and immortal collide in chaos.
This is Book 8 of the Sons of Herne series. Although the tales can be read as standalone romance, there is an overall plot arc that is best served by reading them in order. This series features pagan sex rituals, so if you prefer your romance sweet and behind closed doors, this one's not for you!
